God loves children! Our heart is that from babies to young people, each child will encounter the presence of the Holy Spirit, learn about Jesus as Saviour of the world and get to know the Father's heart for their lives. We focus on fun, friendships, and encouraging one another so that they can truly know how loved they are by God, and by us.
Little stars is a space for the youngest ones of our family to have lots of fun playing. Right now we have an area in the back of the main hall for some room to roam during the worship time (if they'd like). We also have our breakout space open during the sermon so that they can play with the other kids as well as hear about Jesus!
Rockets involves lots of creative play and craft activities, it also usually involves a lot of noise! We introduce the Bible through themes and stories in a fun and lively ways, encouraging kids to trust God and care for each other.
Supernovas is a place for youth to have honest conversations with one another and form healthy friendships in a Jesus-centred environment. We want them to discover the richness of their bibles and know Jesus for themselves. This will include discussions, worship, prayer, quizzes, food, ministry etc.
On Sundays, Rockets and Supernovas walk over to the Phoenix Centre (which is in our car park) together at 10:45am after some time of family worship in the main hall.
They then get to split into their groups and have lots of fun doing crafts and games as well as have time to pray, worship and read the bible. So if you have kids and you'd like them to get involved, just bring them to church on a Sunday and we will introduce you to the team leader and get you all set up. If you'd like more information, you are always welcome to email the office with your query.
Throughout the year we’ll be putting on a variety of Planet Vineyard fun events (Light Party, Family Christmas Service etc.). Many of them will be opportunities for kids and young people to invite their friends to come along and get a taste of church – Vineyard style!
Planet Vineyard is led by John Forth (Rockets) and Holly & Ryan Legg (Supernovas), along with a dedicated and highly enthusiastic team who share a passion for seeing our kids and young people grow up in faith and reach their life’s potential.
Parents: for your peace of mind and in accordance with DBS, each one of the core team has been vetted to work with our young children. Your child’s safety is something we take very seriously at Stour Valley Vineyard.
